Editorial Reviews

Review

The Western Sahara is one of the world s last vestiges of colonialism. In this thoughtful and impressive analysis, Stephen Zunes and Jacob Mundy provide valuable insights on the importance of enabling the people of the Western Sahara to determine their own future through a democratic referendum. --the late Senator Edward Kennedy

This book is a timely and scholarly synthesis presented with clarity and comprehension. Backed by their fieldwork, the authors consider Western Sahara s irresolution as a consequence of not only competing nationalisms (and interfering actors), but also of conflicting imaginations of polity and society. --Phillip Naylor, author of France and Algeria: A History of Decolonization and Transformation

The authors offer a multifaceted analytical overview of the
ongoing conflict surrounding the territory, and the thus-far failed
efforts to resolve it. In doing so, they provide a nuanced portrait
of the history and internal political dynamics of Morocco and the
Western Sahara; the complicated role played by neighboring countries,
especially Algeria... and Mauritania, as well as those of key
western countries, most importantly the United States and
France. --Political Geography

Format: Hardcover
This outstanding book by two acclaimed authors is one of the best works in more than a decade on the long-running Western Sahara conflict. It is highly recommended reading. Scholars, diplomats, civil society activists and students of international affairs will benefit from the exceptional insights and significant research presented in the book. The Western Sahara is one of the world's last post-colonial conflicts, holding important lessons for the rule of international law, self-determination of peoples and the stability of nation-states, particularly in Africa. This book will be a cornerstone of literature on Western Sahara for many years to come.
